Join us on our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram channels for lessons, craft sessions, videos, competitions and LIVE sessions throughout the week.

This week we have a penumbral lunar eclipse, a Strawberry Moon and waning gibbous moon, so time to look to the night sky.

Discover what you can see from your garden tonight, what to look for, how to spot satellites and how you can get involved in #CitizenScience that can help astronomers understand more.
